Educational psychology workforce report published
New research on the educational psychology (EP) workforce conducted by the IER on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE) is now available online.
The report draws on mixed-methods research to map the current distribution and demographic profile of the Local Authority (LA) EP workforce in England and, where possible, also the non-LA EP workforce. It provides evidence on factors driving shortages of trainee and qualified EPs in LAs facing recruitment and retention difficulties. It also makes recommendations on the current training model for EPs.

Futuretrack Stage 5 survey is live
An online survey catching up with UK graduates almost ten years after their graduation to gather data on their working lives has just launched. The survey is a key part of the fieldwork for the fifth wave of the Futuretrack longitudinal study into the careers of UK graduates.
The unique Futuretrack study is run by the IER and funded by the Nuffield Foundation. Futuretrack follows a large sample of students who applied to university in 2005/2006 and aims to gather detailed insights into the kinds of jobs graduates are doing in the longer-term, how they got them, whether higher education has contributed to social mobility.
